Bishop’s (Former) Pledge

I have written before about how Senate Majority Leader Mike Bishop signed the ATR Tax Pledge.

Well, it seems, he has changed his mind. He did not sign it for his current term in the Michigan Senate. Eric B. over at Michigan Liberal has a long post detailing this. The upshot is that Mike Bishop is not beholden to Grover Norquist during this time budget crisis.

So my earlier characterization of Bishop as serving Norquist’s interests instead of Michigan’s was wrong in this case. And I apologize to the Senator for it.
